Hi friends! Welcome back for the second installment of my house tour! I’m so happy to have you back, and I’m excited to share the transformation of my entry, kitchen and dining area. Check it out!
I’m so excited to take you on the first leg of my House Tour today! Let’s begin with the great outdoors! As I mentioned in my first post, I live in a condo/townhome. There’s an HOA, so we’re limited as to what we can do outside, but with approval we are allowed to make some updates.
In the front of each unit we have two parking spaces, and raised flower beds with stone retaining walls on either side of the door. In my previous post, I shared that I’m trying to improve my gardening skills, so I’ve been working on planting flowers in hopes of upping my curb appeal while secretly competing with my neighbor for who did it better (if you’re wondering, he’s winning). And I’m also excited to reveal the other (bigger) changes I’ve made as well. Shall we begin??
Tastes evolve over time. I never used to like asparagus, or broccoli, or peas… okay, I still don’t like peas, haha, but I love, love, LOVE asparagus and can handle, and even enjoy, a side of broccoli if it’s steamed just right. But I digress, because this post isn’t about green veggies. But decor tastes can definitely change over time in the same way your palette can.
My never ending to do list, how I love thee! Projects big and small, maintenance items and minor renovations, purchases and DIYs. Bring. It. On! Okay, maybe I don’t love ALL the things on my to do list… but for the most part, I do.
I was lucky when I found this 1973 condo townhome; the previous owners had done a few major renovations in the short amount of time they lived here, which means I didn’t have to! They opened up the kitchen to make the downstairs open concept, replaced the toilets, HVAC & hot water heater, and added a deck off of the back patio. So when I moved in three years ago, my first round of changes were mostly cosmetic. Stay tuned in the coming weeks as I reveal the before and afters of each space!
